Proteoglycan expression correlates with the phenotype of malignant and non-malignant EBV-positive B-cell lines.
Novosibirsk, Russia. In Oncotarget, Jan 2016
In this study, expression of major proteoglycans (syndecan-1, glypican-1, perlecan, versican, brevican, aggrecan, NG2, serglycin, decorin, biglycan, lumican, CD44), heparan sulphate (HS) metabolic system (EXT1/2, NDST1/2, GLCE, HS2ST1, HS3ST1/2, HS6ST1/2, SULF1/2, HPSE) and extracellular matrix (ECM) components (collagen 1A1, fibronectin, elastin) in primary B cells and EBV carrying cell lines with different phenotypes, patterns of EBV-host cell interaction and viral latency stages (type I-III) was investigated.
Tissue-specificity of heparan sulfate biosynthetic machinery in cancer.
Novosibirsk, Russia. In Cell Adh Migr, Dec 2015
To reveal cancer-related changes in transcriptional pattern of HS biosynthetic system, the expression of HS metabolism-involved genes (EXT1/2, NDST1/2, GLCE, 3OST1/HS3ST1, SULF1/2, HPSE) in human normal (fibroblasts, PNT2) and cancer (MCF7, LNCaP, PC3, DU145, H157, H647, A549, U2020, U87, HT116, KRC/Y) cell lines and breast, prostate, colon tumors was studied.
Combining enhanced biomass density with reduced lignin level for improved forage quality.
Denton, United States. In Plant Biotechnol J, Aug 2015
Plants with low-level expression of the WRKY dominant repressor construct produced lignified cell walls in pith tissues and exhibited enhanced biomass and biomass density, with an increase in total sugars in the cell wall fraction; however, lines with high expression of the WRKY dominant repressor construct exhibited a very different phenotype, with loss of interfascicular fibres associated with repression of the NST1 transcription factor.
Binding properties of somatostatin receptor subtypes.
Basel, Switzerland. In Metabolism, 1996
A single Ser305 to Phe mutation in TM VII increased the affinity of hsst1, for SMS 201-995 nearly 100-fold, and when Gln291 was also exchanged to Asn in TM VII of hsst1, almost full sst2-like binding of SMS 201-995 was obtained.
